Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas is the latest celebrity to express solidarity to the farmers protesting against the farm laws passed by the central government. Thousands of farmers have been protesting against the farm laws for over 10 days at the Delhi border.
On Sunday evening, Priyanka Chopra took to her Twitter handle and retweeted a post by Diljit Dosanjh, who has been standing in support of the farmers from the beginning, and wrote, “Our farmers are India’s Food Soldiers. Their fears need to be allayed. Their hopes need to be met. As a thriving democracy, we must ensure that this crises is resolved sooner than later.”
